No one here should apologize for voicing their opinions. Everyone has that right, and should exercise it regularly. But this also goes with knowing when not to speak. For example, Matthew started, and that was great, then guyzilla (i believe) chimed in, and voiced their opinion. That was great! Now, for the most part, I tend to lean to the conservative side, and I don't necessarily agree with guyzilla (sorry... too lazy to go back to see who really replied to Matt the first time) but I applaud him for speaking his mind as well as Matt speaking his mind. I have seen more arguments start when someone responds to an opposing viewpoint with hatred. The same goes for people who don't quite get the concept of "if you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all". That's why we have racism, boys and girls!

I believe there are two sides to absolutely everything. I try very hard to see both sides, but I'm human and when something strikes a nerve with me, I don't stop to see their side of things.

I do believe there is a global southward slide of humanity. For the most part, human beings have allowed themselves to be told what to believe by the media (both left and right leaning) because it's easier that way. They can watch, take in what sounds good and go about their selfish little lives without taking any time to be "others" minded. I see it every day.

People are people. It doesn't matter at all what your skin color is, what your religion is, what country you're from, what social stature you have, what money or posessions you have. None of that really matters. As a species, we've grown so much and so fast with technology, we've left our humanity, our ability to really help each other, our ability to truly love each other by the wayside... and this makes me really sad.
